This month has been interesting, to say the least. I wrote to you last week about the adventure of having my grandchildren here for a couple of weeks. While I miss them being here, it’s been a delightful week getting things back to normal. On the home front, I’m not sure if I told you we got a puppy in February. He gives the best hugs, all 60 pounds of himself. His name is Tobin and we love him! He’s kind, has a gentle heart, and is a bit of a clown sometimes.
What I’m working on…
Writing the first drafts of my novel was a pleasure. Capturing my imagination wherever it led was an exhilarating experience.
I also enjoyed organizing everything that ended up on the page.
Now, I’m revising so I can bring the story into sharp focus so that it will be enjoyable for you to read.
Getting into the nitty-gritty is fun in a new way, and thanks to my editor, I’m learning so much under her tutelage.
For now, I can’t give you a reliable estimate or even a close guestimate when you can expect to see preorders go on sale, but as soon as I have that date, I will let you know.

Sharing stories with each other…
When a friend recommends a book to me, I’m pretty sure I will enjoy the story. So, I thought it would be nice for us to share books with each other. Hit reply to this email and share the name of a book you love. Include the author’s name and I’ll compile a list to share with everyone next week.
On my bookshelf
Here’s a book that I enjoyed last week.
The Sentinel is episode three of the Harbingers series. The episodes are not as long as a novel, more like novellas, written by different authors, but well connected. Here’s what I know so far…
In book one, The Call, by Bill Meyers, Brenda, a tattoo artist, sees images of the future and paints what she sees. Three other strangers with special abilities join Brenda to help a young student at the mysterious Institute for Advanced Psychic Studies. Daniel’s gifts are supposedly being honed to assist world leaders, but it turns out there are some very disturbing strings attached.
In episode two, The Haunted, by Frank Peretti, a professor who is an atheist and ex-priest, teams up with the four Harbingers to confront a supernatural mystery, a case of murder, and an exploration into the darkness of the human heart, all centering on a mysterious house that can appear and disappear at certain times.
In episode three, The Sentinels, by Angela Hunt, Andi, the professor’s brilliant, but geeky assistant, has troubled dreams of thousands of animals around the world mysteriously dying. When her dreams become a reality, Andi discovers a pattern among the deaths. But her theory doesn’t bode well for humankind—and the team could soon face an even greater disaster.
Have you read any of the Harbingers episodes? What did you think?
